Firefighters in Prattville been answering calls out of the newest station since the beginning of February, reports Montgomery Advertiser.
The station has a pump truck along with a reserve engine, ambulance and brush fire truck. There’s also a kitchen and gym and recliners in the day room surrounding a big screen TV hanging off the wall. The station resides in an area that has seen a lot of residential growth. Fire apparatus are parked in a central three door bay. On the other side is a police department annex and a decontamination room.
Planning for the new station go back officially to 2008, but the need has gone back longer than that. Station 3 went online in 1998.
